    Judging from the responses on this article the ones who have so much to say have nothing to say. Why is it that we give so much time to american stars we forget the talented Canadians right here in Canada, lets support our talented Canadians and programming! Case in fact “FLASH POINT” in order to sell this to the american public they had to downplay the fact that it was produced in Toronto because they presumed if they knew it wasn’t filmed in the Good old USA no one would watch it. Are they kidding one of the best cop show out there!
